The Trews are coming to Halifax and they're going to raise a little hell-p while they're here. The fifth annual Delta Halifax Raise a Little Hellp fundraiser in support of Habitat for Humanity will be rocking for your support this Thursday. Stuart Jolliffe, general manager at Delta Halifax and Delta Barrington says they wanted to create an event that was different than simply sitting corporate donors and sponsors at tables and wanted people to feel as comfortable showing up in jeans as they would in a suit. The Trews are happy to lend a hand to the fundraiser and will be performing an acoustic set for attendees. Two thousand thirteen is an exciting year for the band as it marks the 10th anniversary of its debut studio album. "It's quite a milestone," says guitarist John-Angus MacDonald. He says the band is constantly looking forward, with the plan to put out a new record early in 2014. "We'll do at least a year on the road in support of it and then rinse, wash and repeat," says MacDonald. Fundraiser guests will also be treated to the acoustic sounds of the Alan Doyle Trio, Dustin Bentall with Kendel Carson and singer-songwriters Mo Kenney, Dylan Guthro and Carleton Stone. The best in Nova Scotian beverages, cuisine and locally produced wine and spirits will be showcased throughout the evening and there will be a silent auction with the potential for guests to win trips to some of Canada's best travel destinations and other prizes. Tickets are still available (contact Darren Czech at 494-6428). "Last year we raised $103,000, our highest total to date," says Jolliffe. "Our goal for this year is to once again raise $100,000 or in excess." --Emily Hiltz

Thursday, June 6, 6-10pm, Delta Halifax, 1990 Barrington Street, $150
